Force Feed Loaders on Guns with a Powerfeed Neck

I was wondering if anybody else has run into the problem of balls getting jammed when using a force feed loader on a gun that has a powerfeed style feed neck? I remember I couldn't use my Halo on my Micrococker because of it and my Shocker S/F was having a similar problem.

I just wanted to see if anybody had a solution to the problem. I currently just use a Revi with those guns but would prefer to use something else.

My old mag couldn't run anything without chopping eventually. When I put a x-valve in it, I changed the feed plug to the newer parabolic plug. It never hiccuped again, just fill and fill and fill with a Halo or B2.

If a new AGD plug won't fit in there, you can try altering another plug to try to make that corner better.

When I had a powerfeed automag back in the day, I put on a halo and it would jam all the time. Well at least till the end of the day when I gave up. Never did that again. Never used anything else with a powerfeed.

When I used a Revy on the Automag it never jammed on me.

Thanks for the info. Do you know anybody that has any of the parabolic plugs and or any pictures of them?

That is the same problem I have it's just that sometimes with my Revy a ball isn't there when I need it and that especially caused problems with the micrococker.

Hey Spider! thanks for the picture. Just to be clear though is the one on the left the newer parabolic style one? I think I have about 4 plugs but I have to find and check them.

Yes, left one is new. The flat spot on the right one caused lots of chops.

Somewhat related, how do guys shooting mags find powerfeed with good parabolic plug vs the older direct feed with a force feed loader?

My old PMI Piranha with powerfeed would chop...all.....the.......time. Its plug was just a simple 45 degree plug, though. My experience with it turned me off powerfeeds with loaders, well, ever since.
